a win for parenting

  • “Tea’s ready! Come sit at the table Daniel. C’mon Daniel, come have tea.”
  • Cajoling just has no effect when a two year old is engrossed in Toy Story 2.
  • Pick him up and carry him to the table.
  • He hops down and runs back to the lounge.
  • TV goes off.
  • Screaming starts.
  • Time out.
  • He comes back out.
  • “Sit down and have tea and watch Buzz?”
  • “O’kay!”
  • Tea, and Toy Story for everyone.
  • Yay! 😀
